Pros

This company does provide health insurance for its employees. They hire personnel that are very talented in their field.

Cons

The upper management does not have a clue about what is required to manufacture good products. The view of upper management is everything should be done as "Cheap" as possible regardless of the outcome. They hire professionals, but then they restrict everything these professionals try to accomplish because of cost. They make a lot of promises as far as compensation, but never follow through on these promises.

Advice to Management

Allow your professionals to do their job without being hindered by the bean counting management. You may find out that you have better products to sell.

    Pros

    It is a small company so you interact with all the departments.

    Anyone can communicate with anyone else (including the CEO).

    Pretty positive co-workers, friendly atmosphere.

    Get feedback from supervisor(s) easily.

    Good health care plan, but only if you don't have dependents. Free for workers, but costs a lot to include family members.

    Cons

    Compensation is low. It is a cheap company that hates to spend money on anything. Those that have been around since the beginning (company is 10 years old) basically have carte blanche. Some are lazy and really a pain to work with.

    Since it is a relatively small company, hard to move up. There was only one person between me and my boss in company hierarchy. He wasn't going to be leaving anytime soon, and even if he did, someone else would be brought in to take his place (big gap in experience between myself and supervisor).

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay. Provide more incentives for employees to work harder.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    They hire talented and qualified staff.
    They like to focus on trends.
    They are design focused.
    They have offices in California, China and New York.

    Cons

    This company is completely unorganized in some of their divisions with senior staff that don't seem to know what they are doing. They hire talented people, but give them no authority to make changes that will benefit the company. We have seen people put in senior positions with no experience resulting in losses in staff and sales.

    Advice to Management

    Put qualified people in the senior positions, not just friends and family if you want to succeed. Listen to your employees with industry experience.
